Hello, my name is Grace and here on Plenty Of Simple I will be writing about my parenting experience. My goal is to share with you our journey in raising two boys with strength, integrity, empathy, creativity and wonderment.
I am part of a family of five – three males, an eight year old female Irish Terrier plus me. Oldest male, my husband (Vince) then comes two of the most interesting and sweet little boys, Smartie – his internet name 🙂 – is 5.5 and Smudge – also his internet name – is 3 years old (as of July 2014). We live in a house surrounded by trees, ferns and moss, across a beautiful river in the Pacific Northwest. The air is sweet and we wake up to the sounds of birds and Douglas squirrels chirping very morning.
I want to share here and connect with like-minded parents and friends about the ways we have adopted to raising our little boys. For by today’s standards, we have discovered that our methods are not necessary conventional. So far we have been media/screen-free and (mostly) sugar-free. For us it is a very back-to-basics approach. Since 2009 we have discovered the Waldorf-inspired way to raising a family. We found its philosophies resonate with how we want to develop our very own family culture, one that we feel will suit how we are envisioning our family will become. I will be writing about our thoughts and experiences on how we have been working towards living with simplicity, without compromising our integrity, joy, faith, hope and most importantly our love for our family.
